Albany -- An Albany service organization worries its summer programs for kids could be affected by a burglary in their East Albany building.

 Burglars broke into the East Albany Girl's Inc. and Boys and Girls Club building on Inverness Road Wednesday morning through this air conditioning unit. That a-c unit cools the gym, and it was damaged during the break- in.

 The burglars broke open a couple of vending machines, took money and snacks, and caused more than $5000  in damages.

The Boys and Girls Club summer program starts Tuesday, Girl's Inc. starts their program Wednesday, and officials worry about the gym being hot Girl's Inc. Executive Director LaKisha Bryant said " it is critical we get that unit repaired as soon as possible, because the center is going to be used all day by the girls and the boys."

 Bryant says they're working to have the air conditioner repaired, but they'll likely have to use money designated for programs.
